B and B | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 17
As well as six B&B rooms we also have five small wooden cottages, plus room for camping. We can also take a caravan or camper van.
The B&B rooms are available for one, two, three or four people, and we also have a family suite, which has two separate rooms (one double and one twin, with an en-suite bathroom). This suite can take a family of four or five.
The wooden cottages are let by the week and are designed for two to five people. They contain all appropriate facilities. The facilities listed below relate only to our B&B rooms.
There is plenty of room for camping, either alongside our fountain fed pond or further away in secluded woods, if you prefer.
There is room for a caravan or camper van close to the swimming pool.
All of this can be found at the end of a winding lane, 2 miles from marval (valley of the lakes) in the parc naturel regional perigord-limousin. We are about 40 minutes from limoges airport, and about the same distance from Perigueux and Angouleme, making it an ideal spot for travellers exploring the area or for house hunters.
Airport pick up and drop off available. Our property comprises a 22-acre valley with a 7-acre lake at its heart. It's a perfect spot for watching the wildlife of the region - over 120 species of birds along with otter, deer, boar, civet cat and others.
The lake contains carp, coarse and game fish, and we have a category a (trout) river running through our land. (Please ask the owners for pricing information).
There are a number of beautiful villages and towns in the area with regular markets, good restaurants, and a full range of activities and interests. We keep all relevant tourist information on site and we can also offer internet access and wifi.

The Limousin/Auvergne region
In the Haute-Vienne, everything is possible! Climbing up trees for an eventful session of treetop games, treating yourself to a sailing course on the lakes of Saint-Pardoux and Vassivière, water-skiing on Meuzac Lake. You can also walk across the flower-covered moors, cycle in the steps of Richard the Lionheart, follow the Saint-Jacques Way, picnic on the banks of the Briance, the Vienne or the Bandiat. Or you could decide to gallop in the foothills of Mont Gargan,fish (fly, carp or barbel) in the many rivers and lakes, play golf or go rollerblading on green trails… And end the day knowing that tomorrow will be just as good.
The Haute-Vienne benefits from an environment of exceptional quality. Its landscapes are characterised by open spaces and farmland crossed by a large river network dotted with numerous lakes. Its remarkable variety shelters a wide selection of flora and fauna: gorges and valleys, dry moors and grasslands, heaths and lakes, woods (which cover ¼ of the département) and farmland…
The Haute-Vienne possesses an extremely rich architectural heritage. Roman art left us the collegial churches of Dorat and Eymoutiers, the Solignac Monastry Abbey and numerous village churches. Thanks to military art we have the ruins of Chalucet, Châlus or Lastours châteaux… The art of porcelain glows in the Adrien Dubouché National Museum and that of enamelling in the Evêché Museum in Limoges. And modern art isn’t dead, but alive in places such as the Départemental Museum of Contemporary Art in Rochechouart, the International Centre for Art and the Landscape on Ile de Vassivière, Limoges FRAC (regional arts organisation) and the Espace Paul Rebeyrolle in Eymoutiers.
The International Francophonies Festival, the Saint-Junien Press Cartoons and Humour Festival, the Nexon International Circus Festival… these and more more that prove that culture is alive and kicking in the Haute-Vienne. With an abundance of theatre troupes including the Limoges National Centre for Drama which was awarded a Moliére, numerous musical groups, a well informed music-loving public that with enthusiasm follows the Limoges Baroque Ensemble (directed by Christophe Coin and internationally recognised), a biennial festival of modern dance….. in the Haute-Vienne the thirst for culture appears unquenchable.
Our nearest village is Marval, which has basic amenities and also boasts a 13th Century Chateau (tours can be arranged). There are a number of other interesting Dordogne and Haute-Vienne villages and towns in the area, many of which have lively weekly markets. One of these, the so-called ‘Venice’ of the Dordogne, Brantome, is situated just south of us.
There is also an interesting triangle of larger towns, all about 40 miles away. Limoges, famous for its porcelain, lies to the North East, the cliff-top town of Angoulême lies to the west, whilst below us is the old Roman capital of Périgueux.
Châlus, site of the siege where Richard the Lion heart was fatally injured, is just up the road less, than 10 Km away.
Other activities include the World War II, Martyr village at Oradour-sur-Glane.
If you have an interest in horse racing, Pompadour is the place to go, approximately 1 hours drive away. The village at Pompadour is also worth a look.
